* WebAnimation/HomestarRunner's "First Time Here?" video might count, since two of the things it recommends checking out first are among the oldest material on the site, and the third (the Strong Bad Emails) just happens to have been continually updated ever since around that time and remained the main feature of the site -- to the point where the real question is knowing which ones to watch first. At this point, an entire playlist of specific cartoons is probably recommended [[ContinuityLockout just to get caught up on the most commonly called-back-to material]].

* Some authors avoid this by setting up a wiki for comic, which takes the load off the author's shoulders, and directs the fandom's creative energies so the Wikipedia isn't quite so full of Fictional Character Biographies. For example, ''[[Webcomic/{{Starslip}} Starslip Crisis]]'' or the four {{Walkyverse}} comics. Of course, this can fail too--the {{Walkyverse}} wiki, for example, gets a ''lot'' less detailed dealing with events post-2007, if they're mentioned at all, and as a result of this many newer characters don't even have stub pages.

* {{Lampshaded}} in [[http://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0649.html this]] ''Webcomic/TheOrderOfTheStick'' comic, which goes to new extremes to [[BreakingTheFourthWall Demolish the Fourth Wall.]] The FAQ page for the site is still horribly outdated, though.

* Creator/{{Cactus}}'s "games" page was [[https://web.archive.org/web/20121010044841/http://cactusquid.com/games.htm outdated]] for a long time, listing games only up to 2008; you had to comb through the guy's blog to download, or even find out about any later games he made. It was eventually updated in 2013.

* ''Webcomic/MSPaintAdventures''' [[http://www.mspaintadventures.com/?viewpage=new New Reader]] page is quite out of date, and claims that ''Webcomic/ProblemSleuth'' is "by far the longest adventure". As of July 2012, ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' is more than ''three times'' as long as ''Problem Sleuth''.

* ''Webcomic/TheWhiteboard'' stably updates 3 times a week (as of April 2013 about 10% of updates are filler), the archive is up to date, but other pages on the site have not been touched since 2005-2007. The author mentioned new cast pages in 2011 and even sold some original art made specifically for them, but has not yet written texts that would satisfy him. It isn't so bad, however: 13 out of 16 main characters are present on the 2006 cast page and at least it's spoiler-free.
This list shows the last 10 events of 18. Show all.
